NORMANTON CHURCH WEDDING
Normanton church sat on the edge of Rutland water is quite extraordinary and a very special place to tie the knot.
So we always love a lavish reception and Belvoir Castle sat high on the hill is a treasure of a venue for an exclusive wedding. The tables were a mass of gold and flowers with a luxe gold candelabra surrounded by a sea of blooms. Once the candles were lit the venue shimmered and shone. Linen, gold cutlery, glasses and charger plates enhanced the look. The dessert table was expertly created by Cotton and Crumbs, a great favourite of ours.
We love these amazing images captured by the talented Matt Parry. Congratulations to Carl and Chelsea on your epic wedding.
